    I'm in the process of applying at the moment. They were pretty quick in calling you for an interview! Do you live in the GA area?

    I applied months ago and they never got back to me. I'm starting to feel like its going to be impossible for me to get a job because I was never a tech or CNA

    Yes i graduate May 13th! How long did it take to from the time you applied to the time they called you for an interview? was it in person since you're from out of town?

    I'm from chicago, that's why I ask. what areas were you looking to go into? and when do u think you will hear something?

    LOL, sorry for all the questions. i've been applying for numerous residencies so I like to know as much as I possibly can!

    Hi. sj73201 I applied for critical care RN residency program. They said that I will be hearing from them around May since they are already busy orienting 2011 fall graduates. Those ppl who graduated in December will start thier residency in March. If I got the job, I will be starting in August. They were the nicest people in the world. I loved the fact that how their environment was not corporate like. They were so friendly and kind. And yes the interview was in person. I drove there. It was worth every bit of it. Which area did you apply???

    I applied for med-surg. I feel like i applied too late maybe. i know the position has been up for a while, but i was too busy with school & work! so i hope I can hear something soon. was that a long drive for you? it'll be like a 14-hr drive for me & i doubt i'll drive LOL. was it more of a behavioral interview? I had a phone interview for a hosp in tx the other day & they didn't really ask behavioral questions. how long was the interview?

    where else will you apply?

    I don't think you are late. I think when I went in, there were a lot of ppl who were still applying for the march rn residency program. I am looking into other rn residency programs in GA and had been applying as well. The interview lasted about 45minutes. Have you checked status of the application online??

    i checked it yesterday & there wasn't a change yet. what does yours currently say?
    I guess i'm looking into res. programs any and everywhere lol
    how does it look in NC for new grads now?

    I hope you hear from Piedmont soon. Mine says application forwarded to manager. I am sure you will hear from them once they are settled with their March program. I am not applying anywhere in NC, so I have no idea. My friends were just finishing applying in NC. So, you are willing to move anywhere? I think that's awesome. I am moving back because all my families are in GA.

    I hope you get it! everyone who makes it through nursing school should def have a job coming out of school..geez! i'm looking everywhere!! a lot of hospitals in chicago want you to wait til april to apply.

    it gets on my nerves because I've gone to 2 jobs fairs in the area & a lot of them say apply in's like, i don't pay my fee to get into the fair to be told that! so i guess i'm taking matters into my own hands :-/ because i really don't wanna be unemployed too long after graduation!

    are you currently a CNA or PCT?

    I also have family in GA so that would be nice. for some reason, i really wanna live down south. its one thing living in a big city your whole life. you get used to that living & when you go somewhere else, you have these big expectations in terms of entertainment or social life. but i wouldn't mind living in TN or GA. i've been to SC once, but never NC.
